The Effect of the English Language Learner Pull out Program on Primary Students' Language Achievement
Penke, Heidi T.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Nebraska at Omaha
The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of the English Language Learner (ELL) pull out program on student achievement. Schools are facing the unprecedented challenge to educate a multicultural and multilingual student body with varied abilities and backgrounds of learning. The independent variables in this study were the intermediate ELL students (n = 6) who participated in the ELL pull out program during their first, second, and third grade years and advanced ELL students (n = 17) who participated in the ELL pull out program. The dependent variables were the students' 2006 Reading ELO and Writing ELO pretests and 2009 Reading ELO, Writing ELO, Reading Terra Nova, and Language Terra Nova posttests. This study may offer insight into the best use of available funding for ELL programs. Given the study outcomes, school districts may choose to provide ELL instruction using a pull out program in order to impact student achievement and close the achievement gap.
